  10. 10. The Math Problem
  11. 11. Let’s look at the revenue first 3000 2500 2000 1500 1000 500 0 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6 Year 7 On premise Revenue Cloud Revenue  The average deal size for an on-premise opportunity is $40.5K  The average deal size for a Cloud opportunity is $21.5K  Simply replacing on-premise opportunities with Cloud opportunities will impact your business if you do NOTHING else ….Standing still is probably not an option…  Graph represents cumulative revenue over 7 years  Calculates 10 deals per year at average deal sizes listed
  12. 12. But gross margin is really the game  The average margin for an on-premise opportunity is 24%  The average margin for a Cloud opportunity is 23%  The basic margin is roughly the same, but the total $s are still less AGAIN, if you do NOTHING else ….Standing still is probably not an option… 700 600 500 400 300 200 100 0 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6 Year 7 On premise Margin Cloud Margin  Graph represents cumulative revenue over 7 years  Calculates 10 deals per year at average deal sizes listed  Calculates margin using average margin listed
  13. 13. If you can grow your business by 15%  Cloud is fast-growing market segment  If you can transform your business and grow at 15% greater pace than your current on-premise business BUT…this is still not the total story… 700 600 500 400 300 200 100 0 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6 Year 7 On premise Margin Cloud Margin  Graph represents cumulative revenue over 7 years  Calculates 10 deals per year at average deal sizes listed and grow new customer acquisition by 15% per year  Calculates margin using average margin listed
  14. 14. If your transformation yields Best-in-Class Margins This is where the cloud business becomes compelling…  Graph represents cumulative revenue over 7 years  Calculates 10 deals per year at average deal sizes listed and grow new customer acquisition by 15% per year  Calculates margin using BIC margin (Y1=24%, Yr2=40%, YR3+ = $54%)
  15. 15. And some Solution Providers are experiencing 50+% growth … and here is what that model looks like!!!  This does not include additional services or business opportunities as a result of offering Cloud solutions 900 800 700 600 500 400 300 200 100 0 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 On premise Margin BIC Cloud Margin  Graph represents cumulative revenue over 7 years  Calculates 10 deals per year at average deal sizes listed and grow new customer acquisition by 50% per year  Calculates margin using BIC margin (Y1=24%, Yr2=40%, YR3+ = $54%)
  16. 16. Pricing Models
  17. 17. Value Pricing Model • Aka “All You Can Eat” • Price based on the entire package • Price based on business benefits • Calculate downtime pricing for that customer, and pricing is below that. • Single flat fee • Can include Remote, Onsite, Lab/Bench, or all • Pricing is custom and can be more complicated to calculate
  18. 18. Per Device Pricing Model • Simple pricing based on device counts • Per Server, per desktop, per network, per printer, etc • Can lead to selling on price not value • More complicated in mobile world
  19. 19. Many parts to mobile ecosystem 3G/4G e.g., Verizon, AT&T, O2, Vodaphone Device+OS e.g., Apple, Samsung, Google WiFi Carriers, corporate or public networks
  20. 20. Per User Pricing Model • Priced base on people • Can be type (Knowledge worker versus kiosk worker) or can be flat • Eases problem with mobile and services
  21. 21. Tiered Pricing, aka Gold/Silver/Bronze • Different services in different tiers • “Middle” option easier in sales process • Key to success is single SLA across tiers
  22. 22. The Pick 5 Model • Combine a la carte with Tier • Three or more successively higher priced categories with option to assemble a service • Pick 5 from: • Phone Support • Remote Support • Patch Management • Managed Security • License Management • Case Management • Backup Management • Monitoring
  23. 23. A la carte Pricing • Pick and choose from menu of services • Many decisions • Hardest to sell and maintain profitability
  24. 24. Monitoring Only • Monitoring and Alerting only • Appeals to groups with in house IT • Easy parallel service with break/fix offerings
  25. 25. The By Vendor Model • Manage by the number of vendors managed • Microsoft, Dell, IBM, AV, etc • Count the relationships, and bill based on that. • Drives out complexity • Confusing for immature MSPs

Notas del editor

  • Change this to be your own bio.
  • You’re not going to dwell on the product – come to the booth for that.

  • -- Walk through global opportunities
    -- Note none of them are technology driven – all business driven
  • - Point out that this includes projections, so looking to the future shows MSPs as the growth areas.
  • Technology areas where there is growth – mobile and cloud leading the way, but MSP also a growing area.
  • Cloud awareness is dramatically higher.
  • Cloud is driven by mobility, and common reasons to use cloud services.

  • 12
  • Read below for the details to present on this slide:
    Key points for presenter to make:
    The good news is that the Cloud is driving NEW business.
    Whether you believe this new business is growing at 2%, 5%, or 100%, customers are asking questions about the Cloud, THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY. How often do customers simply pick up the phone to call you and ask you to come talk to them about a new opportunity?
    Many cloud SPs are expecting exponential growth in the cloud
    The economy is better AND this is a growth area. Can’t you see growing your business by 15%?
  • Read below for the details to present on this slide:
    Key points for presenter to make:
    Now, assume that you were able to achieve that relatively modest growth. You also need to focus on the cost and/or margin side of the equation.
    Many SPs that are successful in the cloud ARE seeing significant improvements in their overall gross margin – upwards of 50+% margins.
    Why?
    Packaged service offerings
    Use of appropriate resources for simpler, less complex deployments
    Use of inside sales to close deals more quickly
  • Read below for the details to present on this slide:
    Key points for presenter to make:
    Many SPs are seeing significant growth based on the fact that cloud is a hot topic in the market.
    The sales cycles tend to be slightly shorter; the customers are spending again; in general customers are shopping…
    Some Best-in-class SPs are seeing 50% + margins
    The cloud really DOES have the potential to RESHAPE your business. The opportunity is there. We are still at the beginning of this transition. There is opportunity…but not if you stick your head in the sand 

  • Note how the mobile ecosystem is larger than just devices– lots to manage and lots to monitor.
  • Why using the cloud?
  • The days of only focusing on desktops and laptops are over. Windows is now the minority.
  • We have crossed the inflection point – there are now more smartphones and tablets than there are desktops and notebooks.

    The death of the PC is in consumer – but there is little expected growth anywhere.
  • The why of mobile
  • Three major themes of MSP opportunity
  • Note managed services is more and more understood – opportunity to highlight whole technology platform , but there is still need to teach managed servcies
  • Note focus of end customers is around reducing staff and IT costs, overwhelmingly.
  • The first is about the relationship, using the building to be an outsource CIO.

    The second is about proving your differentiation, and how you can help in addressing these business needs.
  • Initial sales engagement remains the network assessment.

    This is why we offer a new service provider license to help
  • Why the MSP? Lots of reasons to use a local provider.
  • And they want a local provider – 31% say it’s critical, and 50% say important.
  • And they want a local provider – 31% say it’s critical, and 50% say important.
  • This is why we have personalized remote support – ability to interact, face to face, with people they know, but do so at scale.
  • Growing business skills remains second area of focus for 2014.
  • Things they need that you have.
  • Technology areas where there is growth – mobile and cloud leading the way, but MSP also a growing area.
  • Cloud awareness is dramatically higher.
  • Cloud is driven by mobility, and common reasons to use cloud services.

  • The why of mobile
  • The opportunities for the MSP.
  • And highlight security – why we have MDM
  • Areas for consulting
  • BYOD is here.
  • Bring these three themes together, and the MSP who matures…
  • … is more profitable. As measured against maturity, the more mature, the more profitable.
